Revolution Fall to Charlotte FC 3-1

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (NE Revolution) – The New England Revolution (1-2-1, 4 pts.) fell to Charlotte FC (1-3-0, 3 pts.), 3-1, on Saturday night at Bank of America Stadium in the clubs' first-ever meeting. Carles Gil notched the lone goal for New England, his second of the season, on a penalty kick in the 54th minute.

Karol Świderski opened the scoring after connecting with an Alan Franco pass in the sixth minute. Świderski and Benjamin Bender scored the second-half goals for Charlotte.

Down 1-0 early in the second half, New England was awarded a penalty kick after Charlotte goalkeeper Kristijan Kahlina fouled Matt Polster inside the penalty area, resulting in a yellow card for the keeper. Gil converted from the spot, his second penalty goal of the year to go with one assist in MLS play, to tie the game.

Homegrown Player Justin Rennicks (South Hamilton, Mass.) came off the bench for his first MLS appearance of the 2022 campaign. Rennicks joined Jozy Altidore up top, the latter making his first start for the club and sixth appearance in as many games across all competitions this season.

The Revolution head into a bye week during the international window, before returning to action on April 2 to host the New York Red Bulls at Gillette Stadium. The match kicks off at 7:30 p.m on WSBK-TV38, myRITV, CoziTV, 98.5 The Sports Hub, and 1260 AM Nossa Radio.
